The PMT system I'm using at the moment freezes every now and then (15 seconds dead as a dodo as the VM system moves things around) as well as grinding to a near halt when certain applications run (especially over the network). In other words no different from CMT. I am suspicious that the PMT advocates are so for theoretical rather than practical reasons. A lean CMT system with good memory protection and well written applications will perform just as well as, and probably better than, a bloated PC PMT system.

As Dave has already pointed out rewriting RiscOS is non starter so the argument is pointless and done to death several times before. Instead we should work towards improving what we have e.g. better memory protection, multimedia handling, a single OS fork etc
